(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL)- The LRHS boys and girls track and field teams are off to the regional championships after their District Championship competition success.
The boys track team took home the Team Title while the girls were second place.
Over 21 athletes between the two teams qualified for regionals. The competition takes place next Saturday, April 29, at Lakeland’s George Jenkins High School.
The top four athletes from regionals will head to Bradenton’s IMG on May 5 for the State Championship.
